Don’t Wait Til Tomorrow

19 Mar

It has been three weeks since my last blog, and believe me, I needed the time to absorb all that has been going on here & in other parts of the world. I was watching a clip on Youtube of the tsunami in Mikyako City, Iwate, and it left me speechless. It made me cry.  It is unimaginable and it can’t leave you saying, “I’m glad I wasn’t there!” So, what has happened in your life since then?When I see how fragile life is, I always think of how I have treated others, especially the ones who are close to me–my daughters, husband, family, friends, & co-workers.  I think about my oldest daughter who says every night before she sleeps, “Mommy, I love you.  God loves you.  Thank you for everything you do.  You are the best.”  I think about the little things I complain about and how it suddenly becomes meaningless.  I think about human feelings and how sensitive we ‘really’ are (even though most of us think we’re super-tough).  I think about survival and forgiveness.  I think about the things I used to have, which I don’t have anymore. Most of all, I think about the things people have done for me and how those things have changed my life.Though the unpredictability of life awaits us, we must be willing to appreciate what we have now and who we have now. We don’t need to wait for a tragic event in the world to know this. We don’t need to wait until tomorrow to say what’s on your mind because tomorrow may change. We don’t need to wait for others to be nice, when we could take the first steps of kindness.  Why not think of all those people who have made a difference in your life.  Now aren’t you thankful?  Go make those phone calls today.
By the way, if you want to see that clip, here’s the link & take heart: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wYiNnHEGyY&feature=player_embedded
